Hello blog my old friend.

So, I'd love to give you a long detailed post explaining my absence from the blog world for the past week. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, depending how you look at it), I don't have the energy. We've had a rough week and I will just say that, if long periods between posts prompts you to pray for the ministry, that would be great.

On another note, I can't think of many other things I'd rather be doing with my day without any children at home than sitting in a courtroom waiting for the judge to call my name and reprimand me for being in a hurry.

Lucky for me, that's just what I'm doing.

Like this guy's never been in a hurry. I can tell just by looking at him that he's not the punctual type. I can see it in his eyes.

As a matter of fact, I've been sitting on this hard bench for about an hour and a half and no one has even been called on the docket.

What I've decided is that without speeders, the whole world would come to a screeching halt and NOTHING would get done.

I mean, except for school zones. Speeding there is wrong.

Sitting here, though, I'm sandwiched between two lovely women who, it turns out, live in my hood. One just got a home through Builders of Hope, and the other is looking for a way to own a home in West Dallas.

I love how the Lord works.

I also love that I have two new friends, Becca and Adam http://thestanleyclan.blogspot.com/, sitting at my house right now just waiting to see the ministry. While I'm in court. I'm sure they're totally impressed so far.

My children, on the other hand, are totally enamored. Graham wanted to take the to show and tell. He thinks they're "magical".

Maybe I should have brought them to court with me.

Do you think it would have helped?

I missed your posts! I am praying daily for you guys. "Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have mad eht heavens and the earth by your great power and outstreteched arm. NOTHING is too hard for you" (JER 32:17). I am praying for his PEACE in your lives and that "When you are afraid you will trust in him" (PSALM 56:3).

Now SLOW down and BE STILL and KNOW THAT HE IS IN CONTROL!

We HAVE missed you! Hope to hear about your week soon. (Sidenote: why didn't you just pay the ticket and skip court?)

Sorry to hear that you didn't have the same fortune I did day before yesterday. My "Sheeps" Officer, as my 4 yo calls them, was a kind and gracious soul. I got off with a warning. But he did have to write me up, b/c, although I had about 10 insurance cards in my glove box, one from 2006, none of them were current. My son LOVED the fact that I had to go to the Police Station. :)
Hope the Judge gets with the program soon! I know all about courthouse decor. My husband had to go recently. We were there over 2 1/2 hours. Praying that's not the case for you. :)

"I you're not first, you're last." an analect from the sage Ricky Bobby (aka Will Ferrell). Ha ha. Glad you're back.

Glad you are back, sense of humor still in tact! Hope the week or weekend away at the conference was fun and relaxing, and you and Trey were able to skip out on some sessions and frolic around town! You are amazing and I am praying for a speedy exit from the courtroom. :) Lea

We still miss you. So we're praying. I just love what you do & admire you more than you know for doing it. I am too scared. God is blessing your neighborhood through you in ways you can never even imagine!
